A single purpose of the Cancer MoonshotSM Initiative is to make a National Cancer Facts Ecosystem to gather, share, and interconnect a broad array of huge datasets so that researchers, clinicians, and individuals will be capable to both equally add and assess info, facilitating discovery that will in the long run improve affected individual treatment and outcomes.
As component of this endeavor, the Cancer Research Facts Commons (CRDC) aims to collate info across various teams of cancer researchers, each gathering biomedical info in diverse formats. This usually means the info have to be retrospectively harmonized and reworked to enable this info to be submitted. In addition, to be findable by the broader scientific local community, coherent facts (metadata) is needed about the info fields and values.
Using structured biomedical info files, problem participants will acquire equipment to automate annotation of metadata fields and values, using readily available exploration info annotations (e.g., caDSR Common Facts Factors (CDEs)) as effectively as set up terminologies and ontologies (e.g., NCI Thesaurus (NCIt), Logical Observation Identifiers Names and Codes (LOINC), Mondo Illness Ontology (Mondo), International Classification of Diseases (ICD)).
The Competitor aims to drastically reduced the stress of including these annotations across the info ecosystem to streamline and enable both equally retrospective harmonization as effectively as info query, discovery, and interpretation. This problem addresses this time-consuming process with automatic metadata annotation of structured info.
Submission to this Obstacle have to be been given by 5:00 pm PT April 24, 2020.
